    Excellent program. Lot of history i did not know! Love the comment that Elder Vern Harper is a “born again pagan” I have been studying about the injustices done to Indians and First nation people with their adoption by white people as a form of genocide to kill the cultures of First nations people. American Indian, native Alaskans and Native Hawaiians. First I have heard of the term de-feather” but it is so poignant and accurate. I am looking forward to th eother parts of this series with Elder Vern Harper, a true hero filled with love.
